Bon Jovi Ban Getting More Attention
Buffalo, NY (WBEN) The bid by Jon Bon Jovi to buy the Buffalo Bills has spawned rumors he would join Toronto investors in moving the team north. That has sparked a boycott of Bon Jovi's music, and that has been getting more attention.
New York magazine has just come out with an article about the Buffalo Fan Thunder's fight to help keep the team here, and its boycott of playing Bon Jovi. That has been getting attention from the likes of Buffalo Fan Alliance, Hall of Famer Andre Reed, and yes, even Texas A&M University.
Reed as a matter of fact is quoted in the article as saying, "F*** Bon Jovi," say Reed. “You might as well just take this city, throw it in the river, and let it go down Niagara Falls.”
Today is the deadline for prospective bidders for the Bills, and there's no word yet if the Bon Jovi group will be one of the finalists.
